Expect a fascinating, novel dialogue among soulful strains of music—Indian classical, Jewish, and American roots music—when Andy Statman joins forces with Jay Gandhi, Tripp Dudley and David Ellenbogen. A major figure in the revival of interest in klezmer music, and a virtuoso on mandolin and clarinet, Statman brings his “American-roots music and personal, prayerful Hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” Over a legendary career, Statman has worked with everyone from Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, and Bela Fleck to Izhak Perleman and klezmer legend Dave Tarras.
In this unique and amazing collaboration, Andy expands his musical explorations, tapping into the rich traditions of improvisation and spiritual yearning that animate Indian classical musical as well as his own creations.
Jay Gandhi is a senior disciple of the prominent bansuri maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia. Working alongside jazz legends like Reggie Workman and Jeff “Tain” Watts, Jay brings new languages to the bamboo flute and continues to captivate audiences in India, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
David Ellenbogen has studied and performed music in over a dozen countries including India, Mali, Cuba and Brazil. He has expanded the audience for world music through his radio broadcasts on WKCR, his podcast, NYC Radio Live, and ambitious live productions like the Ragas Live Festival, which recently featured 90 artists in 15 cities including, Terry Riley, Zakir Hussain and Toumani Diabate.
